Monster Wave Breaks World Record For Biggest Ever Captured On Camera

A monster wave has broken the world record for the largest wave ever in the southern hemisphere.

The record-breaking wave measured 23.8 metres (78 feet) and lashed Campbell Island, off New Zealand's south coast, according to the Meteorological Metservice of New Zealand. 

Tom Durrant senior oceanographer said: "This is a very exciting event and it is the largest wave ever recorded in the Southern Hemisphere."

Back in 2015, Alex Croucher captured a moment of Southern Ocean storm when waves were as high as 20 metres (65 feet). Take a look at the footage taken from the skip's cabin!
